Azuki, a hedgehog from Japan, has 270,000 followers on Instagram. And more are signing on every day. Why? Because Azuki is irresistibly cute. And Azuki has a more interesting life than many people. Including me, possibly. I haven’t been camping in ages!

What do Rocky J. Squirrel, Cindy Lou Who, Granny from the Tweety cartoons, Witch Hazel, and Natasha Fatale all have in common? They and countless other cartoon classics were given aural life by legendary voice actress June Foray. June Foray brought a ton of fun whenever she met a microphone. Thanks, June, for speaking up!

Happy Mother’s Day!

Today all loving moms deserve breakfast in bed. Brought to them quietly, without any fuss. And then taken away just as quietly, so they can be left to SLEEP IN. Thanks, moms, for all that you do!

Thanks, Jack Davis!

Legendary Mad Magazine artist Jack Davis departed this mortal realm today. He drew many classic Mad covers and contributed countless hilarious images to my favorite magazine of all.

He was also a well-known artist in the world of horror comics. Look how well he captured the greatest monsters of all time!

Here’s his take on Tarzan.

And his anti-smoking look at cigarette advertising. Don’t smoke, people!

Thank you for bringing so much fun to life, Jack Davis!

And by the way…Mad Magazine is alive and well in the 21st Century. Take a look!

It’s Martin Luther King Day

Posted: January 21st, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , | No Comments »

Civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. dreamed that children would one day live in a nation where they would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. He hated bullies and violence and worked for change through peaceful means. Today we take time to remind ourselves that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Thank you for your work and wisdom, Dr. King!
